Paul Madden, Head of PE, commented: “The PE Department and I are extremely proud of all our students: they have grown into real team players with the best possible attitude to sport.  The boys’ football team did us especially proud with their first international schools’ tournament victory.  I have no doubt that it will inspire all our other teams to be just as successful in the future.  Well done Team Regents!”
